Route Description/Find Out More
Ticking off three of the Muckle Toon’s five Summits is no easy feat, however with fuel in the tank and a desire to reach the top you will not be disappointed on this gem of a route. Join our charismatic local guides for a day in the hills like no other.
Don your limited edition ‘3 Summit Challenge’ T Shirt and join your fellow challengers at Basecamp for a 9am start towards Langholm Monument on Whita Hill – your first Summit of the day. (Saturday morning walkers will find themselves joined by a steady flow of mountain bikers also hoping to complete the arduous ascent on two wheels). A steep descent will bring you to the market square where your guide will relay the traditions of the towns’ horseman who undertake this route on horseback for the annual common riding (another local event well worth marking in your diary!). Crossing the River Esk you begin a steep hike towards the trig point summit of Warblaw, standing firm to the West of the town. Refuel here before heading back towards Basecamp and a steep hike towards the Summit Ridge of Castle Hill where a celebratory glass of bubbly will be waiting for you. Descend to the hustle and bustle of Basecamp and join the party!
All pre-paid entrants receive limited edition ‘3 Summit Challenge’ T Shirt, Log book and celebratory drink.
